Fodor's Expert Review Corto Maltes Amazonia

Madre de Dios River, Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru

A short boat ride down the Madre de Dios River from Puerto Maldonado, this lodge provides an affordable introduction to the rainforest and easy access to beautiful Lago Sandoval. Thatched, wooden bungalows with private baths and balconies provide more privacy than rooms at most of the area's lodges, as well as easy access to a main building with a bar, restaurant, and swimming pool. In addition to the lodge's resident macaws and toucans, the surrounding forest holds an array of other animals. Guests will see even more wildlife on a trip to nearby Lago Sandoval, which is included in two- and three-night stays.
